The Shadowlands are a region dominating the southern half of the mainland. The area is characterized by frozen tundra. It is considered largely inhospitable to humans because of the short three hours of daylight and the lack of vegetation. The sudden drop in temperature come nightfall and the high-speed winds which ravage the region can lead to hypothermia and frostbite.
Since the First Exekian War, the Shadowlands have become a safe haven for Exekians fleeing human aggression. Numerous feudal kingdoms and tribes formed, which experienced infighting amongst themselves within the last two hundred years. Currently, there are only two major factions, the New Exekian Empire to the west, and the Clan to the east.
